6:32am
choice but to go in with guns blazing, even after the u.s. and other governments had asked the algerians to hold off out of concern for the safety of the hostages. >> the algerians' position has always been we don't negotiate, we don't mess around. >> that was brian ross reporting. >> this year's president obama's inauguration, as you know, falls on the martin luther king holiday. mark matthews spoke with the world's foremost authority on dr. king. the question, if they could have met, what would the leader of the civil rights movement, who was murdered in memphis, what would he have to say to president obama about guns and violence in our society?

6:34am
but as we know, the death of black children on a daily, weekly basis, doesn't seem to garner the same kind of attention. >> look no further than oakland, said carson. and he points to dr. king's message that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. >> he was saying that 50 years ago, but now we have to believe that. because injustice in one place can lead to terrorism in another place. >> these are the things that have to concern us for our own future, said carson. his latest book is "martin's dream." he held an open house at the mlk institute on stanford's campus, but wear website says they welcome visitors to see their collection of documents and photographs located in cyprus hall. in the newsroom, abc7 news. >> new this morning the group

6:42am
combination of traditional methods as well as the newer crowd sourcing methods. >> but they said there's one thing the numbers don't change as the flu epidemic across the country, the best way to fight it is a flu shot. >> there is still plenty of time to get a flu vaccine and i would urge everyone to do that. >> in san francisco, jonathan bloom, abc7 news. >> or just keep washing your hands. that's my remedy. lisa argen is here now to talk about what is happening weather-wise. >> it's certainly still cold out there with temperatures below freezing despite the mild averages. this is gorgeous. the sun up at 7:22 this morning. we have an east wind out there. you see the trees blowing, 15 to 20 miles an hour. it is keeping the temperatures up at our coast, though. i'll explain next. >> that is a pretty shot. thank you, lisa. also cutting edge science turns to toys. we will explain why researchers would build

6:46am
just a few. the cutting edge of science also involves ideas so complicated it's hard to wrap your mind around them. but one innovative program in the bay area is trying to make scientific research more efficient by making parts of it simpler. abc7 news health and science reporter carolyn johnson has the details. >> when most people see a stack of legos, you see this, and this guy sees building blocks of science. his campus used piles of them to construct their very own working lego microscope. >> the microscope essentially is made out of two lenses. the first one is here. >> they did need to fabricate a few specialty parts in the lab's 3d printer. a kind of computer easy bake oven that converts schools of snap-on objects like lens holders. the results, a working device
6:47am
built to answer all kinds of scientific questions except the one you may be asking yourself right now, why build a microscope out of legos at all? the answer is a new program just launched at ucsf. it's a course designed to change the way scientists think about their work. the director says one of the goals is to make research projects more practice by focusing on the end user. >> and having them work together in this idea-based way. brainstorming ideas. it brings a new dimension to the way that science can be done. >> as a test case, the team was tasked with reimagining uses for cell phone microscope developed at the university of california. it's creators envisioned it as a way of diagnosing diseases in remote locations, but it's yet to be commercialized. to help the process, they brought in consultants, famed for work on the user interfaces like the original computer mouse.
6:48am
scott helped hone the questions to a razor's edge. >> who might use it and how. >> they thought it needed a demonstration component. it might help teach science. a way to help students and people understand the inner workings of the microscope. hence the home plate legos microscope project. >> i think the discovery they had from talking to teachers will how you might use something like this is how do we demystify the science of microscope by. >> the students said the design process has already refocused their thinking and their appreciation for the creative process. >> it's especially been a lot of fun. >> right, right. >> and carolyn says the alternative design exercises already being employed internationally. a team from ucsf recently held similar brainstorming sessions with colleagues in beijing. looking for new ways to research
6:49am
key challenges in cell biology. >> whether resop, that is lisa argen's expertise. >> i try, anyway. we have some challenges ahead with the changing forecast. but this morning starting out very chilly, but very pretty shots. looking at mount dough ab below from the east bay camera. nice and clear for most everyone. a few patches up in the north bay of fog and you see how pretty the morning is starting out. we will see another mild afternoon. temperatures slightly above the average. as we look at live doppler 7hd, a couple more days for it to stay quiet before it picks up not only some higher clouds but perhaps precip coming our way by the middle of the week. so this morning really nothing to speak of here. but we are talking about freezing temperatures from napa at 32, 28 novato. good morning santa rosa, 29 for you. 31 livermore valley with a pair of 30s for concord and fairfield. 59, though, half moon bay.

those breezy east winds allowing for the temperatures to stay pretty mild to start out. 54 monterey and 31 gilroy. cooler in parts of the north bay this morning. elsewhere very little change and we will begin to offset these very cold nighttime temperatures in the days ahead with more cloud cover. so a little fog. high surf again today and the mild days continue just for a few more days before the ridge begins to break down. you have heard about the high surf advisory through this afternoon with the current wave heights anywhere from five to eight feet. and in the deeper water we could see the swells over 20 feet. so that's great for the surfers. dangerous for the spectators. really dangerous for everybody. but we are being protected here with this area. high pressure lingering and shunting the storm track to the north. it will stay that way through tuesday. the averages will feature temperatures a also milder, a few high clouds from time to time. but then by tuesday the ridge
6:51am
breaks down and the offshore flow is gone. that allows for a weak weather system to head our way, bringing perhaps a few sprinkles, but really more notably will be the cooler temperatures for everyone wednesday into thursday with the cloud cover and that cooler air settling on in. so get ready for that. it's going to be a bit of a change. we've seen these mild temperatures now for about a couple weeks. 65 in fresno with big sur in the mid-80s. 62 chico and back home low to mid-60s. a pleasant afternoon for palo alto. 55. 56 in san jose. look at the 70s returning for salinas, gilroy and santa cruz. so the accuweather seven day forecast keeping it milder. maybe a few sprinkles north bay. thursday partly cloudy and by next weekend it looks like we will be getting wet and that will bring the temperatures back to normal.
